It's Senior day for the Irish and it seems that the only way they'll end their season with a bowl game is to upset the Utah Utes. Freshman Tommy Rees looked good last week, but keep in mind it was against the worst pass defense in the country. I have serious doubts as to whether or not he can do any damage down the field, which will be necessary to win this game. I'm guessing Utah will load up the box, press the receivers, and see whether he's capable of hitting receivers in the 20+ yard range.
The defense will hold its own against a pretty explosive offense, but the Irish are too banged up and too inconsistent to pull the upset.
